36 You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
37 For, “In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay.”a
38 And, “But my righteousb one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.”c
39 But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.
